Why should I hire a pest control professional? Can’t I just do it myself?

Pests are adept at hiding and entering a home in places you would never think to look. A pest management professional will know where to look for pests and make recommendations on what it will take to prevent or eliminate these types of pests.

How long after the initial pest control treatment does it take to see results?

Results will vary according to the type of pest control treatment methods and products used. For example, immediate results can be seen when a bee’s nest is removed or treated with a liquid pesticide. However, when using baits for ants, rodents, and termites the process takes longer since the pests have to ingest the product in order for it to be effective. Your pest control exterminator will consult with you on the timeline for this treatment.
